From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Barry Levinson (Best Director, Rain Man, 1988) comes the hilarious comedy Rock The Kasbah, available on DVD on 25th July 2016, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Academy Award® nominee Bill Murray (Best Actor, Lost in Translation, 2004) leads an all-star cast in this humorously quirky, music-filled story of a down-on-his-luck rock manager (Murray) who discovers a teenage girl with an extraordinary voice while on a tour in Afghanistan and decides to take her to Kabul to compete on the popular television show Afghan Star. Inspired by stranger-than-fiction, real-life events, Rock The Kasbah co-stars Academy Award® nominee Kate Hudson (Best Supporting Actress, Almost Famous, 2001), Zooey Deschanel (TV's The New Girl, Elf), Danny McBride (This Is The End, Pineapple Express), Scott Caan (TV's Hawaii Five-0, Ocean's 11 series) and Bruce Willis (The Expendables 2, Die Hard series).

Fans of smart comedy and knowing social satire won't want to miss the movie Peter Travers of Rolling Stone says, goes fierce to quietly touching and back to funny again on Digital HD and DVD, with the bonus making-of featurette Bill Murray Rocks, in which director Barry Levinson, writer/producer Mitch Glazer (TV's Magic City, The Recruit, Scrooged) and the cast talk about their experiences making it.

A has-been rock manager from Van Nuys, California stumbles upon a once-in-a-lifetime voice in a remote Afghan cave in Rock The Kasbah, a dramatic comedy inspired by stranger-than-fiction, real-life events and directed by Oscar winner® Barry Levinson. Richie Lanz (Murray), dumped and stranded in war-torn Kabul by his last remaining client (Deschanel), discovers Salima Khan (Lubany), a Pashtun teenager with a beautiful voice and the courageous dream of becoming the first woman to compete on national television in Afghanistan's version of American Idol.

Richie partners with a savvy hooker (Hudson), a pair of hard-partying war profiteers (McBride and Caan) and a hair-trigger mercenary (Willis) and, braving dangerous cultural prejudices, manages his new protégée into becoming the Afghan Star.

Rock The Kasbah was produced by Mitch Glazer, Ethan Smith (Joy, Fury), Bill Block (District 9, Fury), Steve Bing (Get Carter, Marley) and Jacob Pechenik (The Skeleton Twins, Before Midnight). Executive producers are Tom Ortenberg, Peter Lawson, Iakovos Petsenikakis, Iakovina Petsenikakina, Sasha Shapiro, Anton Lessine, Brian Grazer, Tom Freston and Marsha Swinton.
